thought i might post something truck related in the so cal section

i posted this in the wheels suspension steering etc forum but figured id post here too since there always seems to be people in the so cal area...
hey guys, looking to get some 1.5"-2" wheel spacers for the truck in my sig. Wanted to know what you guys think. Im not talking about the spacers that just slip on and take up thread, im talking about the bolt on adapters that bolt to the hub and then allow you to bolt the wheel to the spacer. Its billet aluminum, these (click here) are what im looking to get. My tires are rubbing on my upper spindle mounts so i wanted to space em out. Ill prolly need to trim the fenders a bit more, i had to with the 35"s anyway so thats not a problem, just let me know what you guys think about using wheel spacers.
Thanks
BLA

I'm not into spacers - but short of getting a different offset wheel, that's about all you can do if you want to end the rub.

No - it's more like the flange of the wheel is farther from the hub than it aught to be. I guess it's ok, but that's just my thought on it.
